Special Deal For Australian VPN Users

As we have noted a few weeks ago, the handing over of the personal details of 4,726 users who illegally downloaded the 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club from Australian Internet Service Providers to Voltage Media (the company that owns the rights to Dallas Buyers Club) has created a groundswell of Australian VPN interest.

It seems this Dallas Buyers Club fiasco is only the beginning. The Australian government has taken some very alarming steps in its efforts to curb illegal downloading and piracy across the country. This is most certainly due to heavy pressure from media industry groups (like Voltage Media) trying to maintain a stranglehold on content delivery and access throughout the country. Media giant Sony has even lobbied the Australian government to block access to content not licensed specifically within the country.

Using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is a great method of protecting yourself from prying digital eyes, be it snooping governments or, in this case, media companies. With this growth in interest, we have been receiving much attention from Australian VPN users looking to get the most out of their setup by using a FlashRouter. Using a FlashRouter, you can set up a VPN network in your home, and use a VPN on devices like Roku and AppleTV, which otherwise have no VPN support.

This being said, while we are in the slow transition from Spring to Summer here in the United States, over in Australia, it seems the Winter season is about to begin. Though Aussies do not have to go through the same winters that, say, people who live in Buffalo, New York have to go through, we figure that colder weather probably means a lot more time indoors and time indoors probably means a lot more time streaming Netflix.

And now that Netflix has finally come to Australia, upgrading your router to handle some high-quality Roku streaming certainly seems like a good idea. And if you would like to switch back and forth between a US IP and an Australian IP to take advantage of multiple Netflix regions, a FlashRouter can help with that too!

However, we know Australia is a long way from the East Coast of the United States and the cost of shipping a router this distance can be rather intimidating. This is why, to celebrate this splurge of new Australian VPN users, we will be setting a flat priority shipping  rate of $ 25 for all FlashRouters over $ 200 to anywhere in the Commonwealth of Australia. To take advantage of this deal, simply select Australia as your shipping country in the cart and it will appear. Now, on to the routers…

Top Routers for Australian VPN

Asus RT-AC87U DD-WRT OpenVPN Router Best Routers 2015 - Budget Wireless-AC The TP-Link WDR3600 Dual Band DD-WRT FlashRouter
Asus RT-AC87U DD-WRT Netgear AC1450 TP-LINK WDR3600 DD-WRT

Best in Class Asus Model Economy Wireless-AC Favorite Budget Wireless-N Favorite
$ 429.95 $ 199.95 $ 149.95

If you are going to be streaming with a VPN in Australia, using a FlashRouter is your best bet. With a FlashRouter, you will not only be protecting individual devices with a VPN, but rather your entire network. However, connecting to a VPN will always cause some kind of drop in speed, as you will have to tunnel your connection to a VPN server and back. To even out this slowdown, using a high-powered FlashRouter like the 1 GHz powerhouse Asus RT-AC87U will certainly suffice. The RT-AC87U uses four external antennas, providing a wide WiFi range. This is a fantastic device for a large home, small business office or for anyone looking for a gaming wireless router.

Interested in a powerful wired option as opposed to a wireless connection, the Netgear AC1450 FlashRouter is a recommended router as it uses an 800 MHz processor at the competitive price point of $ 199.95. The AC1450 uses internal antennas,  making this the preferred device for users looking to get the most out of their connection without focusing on expanding their wireless range. For Australian VPN users who looking for Wireless-N support at a value, the TP-LINK WDR3600 DD-WRT is a choice mid-range router. For more information on these three devices, as well as the rest of our catalog, check out our Best Wireless Routers of 2015.

Best Australia VPN Providers

As you may have noticed, there are a slew of providers available for would-be Australian VPN users and picking which provider you will choose to spend your hard-earned money on can be a bit of a challenge. So, with this, let’s see some of the best VPN providers for Australian users.

PureVPN offers great a service for Australians, with servers in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia. On top of this, PureVPN also provides a high-speed service and highly rated customer support. PrivateInternetAccess is another well-reviewed service popular with Australian VPN users. In addition to hiding your IP address, PrivateInternetAccess also encrypts your data at a packet level, providing even more security. The service is also available at a great value. Lastly, IPVanish is one of the most highly regarded VPN providers supported by FlashRouters and is a great choice for Australian VPN users. IPVanish has servers in more than 60 countries and keeps zero logs. FlashRouters also has a slew of other supported VPN providers.

postheadericon and FOX News team up to bring real-time online polling to nightly news; Bing Pulse featured on ‘Special Report with Bret Baier’

REDMOND, Wash. — Sept. 16, 2013 — and FOX News Channel (FNC) are teaming up on the Bing Pulse online voting tool, enabling viewers to share their opinions and reactions to news commentary in real time online at With the new feature, viewers will have the opportunity to interact with the panel segment on FNC’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” (weeknights at 6 p.m. ET) to offer their feedback instantaneously.

“This is a first for evening news,” said Josh Gottheimer, general manager of Strategic and Special Projects at Microsoft Corp. “With the Bing Pulse, viewers get a seat at the table to weigh in on the discussion. It’s the perfect marriage of the Internet, Bing’s big data technology and television news programming.”

Earlier this year, Bing and FNC debuted the Bing Pulse as part of the network’s coverage of the 2013 State of the Union address. The breakthrough Bing Pulse recorded the largest live online poll in history, garnering 12.9 million votes during President Obama’s live address. Real-time results from the tool were shown on the network and available at

How it works

The Bing Pulse allows people to join the conversation by “voting” every five seconds on their reactions to the content they are watching during the panel’s discussions. Viewers simply go to from a computer, tablet or mobile device to connect with the conversation. Unlike typical polls, the Bing Pulse allows people to self-identify as male or female and register their party affiliation. The Bing Pulse enables Americans to track and share opinions on the top issues of the day. As the panel discussion progresses on the program, viewers have five choices to characterize how they are feeling about the discussion: strongly agree, somewhat agree, neutral, somewhat disagree and strongly disagree.

The live count of the number of “pulses,” or votes, is shown as a line graph of how users react to language and issues throughout the discussion that is visible on-screen. In addition to measuring the sentiment of the audience about the conversation, the Bing Pulse also provides an intensity score, which highlights the moments on the panel segment when the greatest number of viewers voted at the same time.

Data is split by gender and political affiliation. During the course of the program’s panel, the Bing Pulse features updated results every few seconds on the TV screen with data also available at Final results are reported at the end of the program.

During a monthlong pilot of the tool on the Friday editions of “Special Report” in August, millions of votes were cast and as many as 60,000 votes per minute were recorded during the panel discussions on the program.

Want Better Streaming? Get a Better Wireless Router!

One of the very best reasons to purchase any new router is to enhance your home entertainment and streaming video/music experience. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more provide solid HD entertainment but to get the best viewing experience you must have the correct router in place.

Many may have received the gifts of Netflix subscription, Hulu Plus Subscription, Pandora, Slacker, or Amazon Prime over this holiday season. Perhaps your viewing experience is not all you hoped. Are you limited to viewing on your computer alone? Is the quality of your video suffering from a slow wireless connection? Perhaps you are noticing buffering with your High definition (HD) streaming.

How Can a Better Wireless Router Improve Netflix Quality?

Even for those with a powerful Internet connection, without the appropriate router for your specific needs, your ability to stream the content you desire may not be up to par.

At FlashRouters we convert personal class/SOHO wireless routers to more powerful business class routers with special Quality of Service controls and wireless extender features. This means that you can enhance your streaming experience…

Many of our educated customers are aware of security and anonymity concerns as well, and would therefore like to integrate a VPN connection into their network while also streaming the content they desire.

This is why we are now offering an all-encompassing streaming solution to FlashRouter customers so they can not only get a better router, but a better Internet experience on all devices in their home network.

Once you integrate your FlashRouter with one of the 30+ supported VPN Providers including , PrivateInternetAccessHideMyAssIPVanish, StrongVPN, & Overplay, you can very easily connect any streaming player to your FlashRouter network, either wired or wireless, and send all data and traffic through the VPN tunnel for full anonymity and to unblock your favorite content.So upgrade your entire home network today with a brand new FlashRouter and streaming player.

Note: This is a limited time offer. This deal applies to new orders only and cannot be honored for orders previously placed. We have limited quantities available of each player so once it goes out of stock, you are out of luck. If you have a preference for streaming player savings be sure to snatch up your media player at these unbeatable prices before they are all gone.
